Kilby Historic Site is the perfect place for a trip down memory lane. Literally! Join us each day at 2pm for a heritage walking tour down to the confluence of the Fraser and Harrison Rivers. An interpreter will show you archival photographs of the old town site of Harrison Mills and deliver a short history of the area including First Nations, transportation and the industry this town was famous for.
The Kilby Museum is a 1920’s Fraser Valley living history site complete with costumed interpreters. This 5 acre BC Heritage attraction includes our 1906 General Store Museum, Manchester House Hotel & Post Office, as well as farming exhibits and orchard playground. BC’s Museum of Rural History!
The Fraser Heritage Society will also be on site conducting a membership drive. Your memberships help collect , preserve, research and interpret the unique history of the Kilby family and the general store and farm they operated.
